​Fighting Tao

This song is by Hurt and appears on the album Goodbye to the Machine (2009).

If I'd have known it is the only time,
I would see your face,
Then we'd celebrate
When I'm alone, living is only time,
Till I see your face,
Though it's not today

When I'm alone, it is the only time,
I would see your face,
When I'm desperate
Now I'm alone, building my holy shrine,
Where I'll see your face,
And then contemplate,

If everything that's new is a lie,
It's that same damn morning,
And the same damn sky

All I do brings me close to you,
Whatever you'd ask me to,
Although I can't take back what's taken from me
All I see becomes a part of me,
And even if you don't believe,
Well I'll see you where the river meets us

Fighting the tide that takes me home
Only dreaming of the day,
When the world will go away,
A world that's full of pain

We fight the fight so that we might
Know the fear of our mortality
If you breathe between the waves,
You will end up in a lake

All I do brings me close to you,
Whatever you'd ask me to,
Although I can't take back what's taken from me
All I see becomes a part of me,
And even if you don't believe,
I'll see you where the river takes me


And everything that's new, is a lie
It's that same damn sun and the same damn sky
And everything you thought you knew, is a lie
God bless you son, at least you tried

All I do brings me close to you,
Whatever you'd ask me to,
So I can't take back what's taken from me
But all I see becomes a part of me,
And even if you won't believe,
Well I'll see you where the river takes me

All I do, [just brings me close to you/and all I do]
You were all I'd see, yeah, [becomes a part of me, a part of me]
And all I do, [just brings me close to you, yeah]
You're all I see, and I'll see you when the river meets us
